We booked a room for three nights in December 2014. It's clean with good Volcano view. Staff is nice. Hot Springs is also good. They have Happy Hour everyday from 4pm to 6pm with $7 USD for two drinks. Fresh air and it is only 10 minutes away from downtown. We booked the ATV tour for $130 for two people... More

This was by far our best experience in laFortuna. Beautiful scenery, hot springs facing a magnificent volcano, pretty birds flying by, cool drink in hand.....who could ask for anything more!!! we really liked this spot alot. A bit pricey but we got a discount and we would have paid full price either way compared to some spots we stayed in.... More

I have stayed here every year for the past 7 years, and will continue to stay here on my yearly visit to the LaFortuna area. Beautiful ground and gracious people. Very much enjoyed the addition of the new hot springs, new bar area and new reception area. Very nice updates.

Our room was really spacious and immaculately clean, which we really appreciated. The grounds were beautiful and well-groomed and we enjoyed the thermal spa as well. The restaurant served an excellent breakfast each day and we liked the al fresco dining. I didn't eat dinner there as I was a bit under the weather but my husband did and brought... More

Our first impression was great,spacious rooms,lovely pools and fabulous hot springs. The staff on the other hand was way too informal and everything sounded rehearsed as they all greated and treated us in the same manner. Making it almost annoying. The food in the restaurant was pricy compared to our other experiences, my filet mignon was excellent, but the fish... More

We stayed here during our visit to CR. We were especially impressed by the quality of foliage on the grounds and the upkeep. The springs were nice to have but not what should bring you to this hotel. The rooms were adequate. Hotel restaurant was a bit over-priced and the food wasn't the best, but was adequate for a late... More

I was very pleasantly surprised with this hotel. One surprise was its size (feel more like a resort than a lodge - very spread out with multiple pools) and the second was the diversity of plant and birdlife there. Their gardens attract a huge number of birds (including loads of humming birds), so we were constantly entertained by them during... More

The only thing that wasn't great here, were the happy-hour deals at the bar, they only had a few simple drinks on special (for example: rum and coke) and they were made with really cheap house liqueurs .

The Volcano Lodge & Springs was a great place to stay. Beautiful views, wonderful hot spring on the grounds, good service. Getting here takes a while on the winding roads, be prepared to drive slow. Too far to town walk but it's only a short drive to town and several other activities in the general area. All around a pleasant... More
